This is a superb contribution that is essential for the practice of OB/GYN and womens health in todays setting. As hard as I tried I could not find anything that was missing. This is a treasure. --Alan DeCherney, M.D., Editor, Fertility & Sterility

Format: Paperback
I've used this book as a 3rd and 4th-year medical student and am soon to begin my OB/Gyn residency.

Pros:
-Primary care section covers the big topics you might see in a typical primary care setting.
-Outline format helps pack in information
-Helpful diagrams, such as those for pre-eclampsia and abnormal uterine bleeding
-ACLS section (includes neonatal resuscitation algorithm)
-Concise medical spanish section
-Some high-yield anatomical drawings
-The new REI section is quite extensive (also a "con")
-The operative reports section is great. For residents, this may be one of the best aspects of the book.

Cons:
-Excessively thick. This edition gained a lot of weight/pages because Dr. Lebovic's REI handbook was basically added on to the previous edition. The length and width pretty stayed the same, so the book just got thicker. The book is too thick to carry on you if you're just wearing scrubs, but can be fit in your white coat. Even so, it just feels annoyingly bulky and heavy.
-Not well-indexed. The index could be more extensive and intuitive. I have only used this book as a third- and fourth-year med student, but I can tell you that there were many times when I tried to look something up in the index, only to get frustrated and wish that I had just searched for it via UpToDate.
-The binding needs to be stronger, given the physical characteristics of the book. My book is split in half, only held together by the cover.
-The length of the REI section. It's roughly as long as the OB section. Given the scope of what OB/Gyn med students and residents experience, that much REI is too extensive for this type of book.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book, especially for the price. It is too bad it has lost its "pocket size", but on the other hand you can actually read the font in this edition, and there are several important additions/expansions (actually it does fit in the coat pockets, it is just a little bulky). I would certainly recommend this book to anyone doing Ob/Gyn clerkships, Sub-I's or residency. Other than Up to Date and hospital-specific protocols, this is the most-used reference.

This is a great quick reference book for clinical practice. Easy to read (despite small print) and to the point information. Another reviewer said this new edition was too big to fit in their pockets; apparently they have really small pockets because I have no trouble putting it in a lab coat. On the other hand, it won't fit in my scrub pockets, so perhaps this is what the reviewer is referring to. Either way, I recommend this reference manual to residents, nurses, nurse practitioner and midwifery students.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Joshua Russell on April 17, 2008
Format: Paperback
+ Practical for residents that deal w/ Ob/gyn issues
+ comprehensive
- Appendix is not well layed out and has insufficient entries to find the topic you are looking for in a pinch
- Not really "pocket-sized"
- Overkill in terms of details for medical students and not enough background information to use as quick study guide for pimping preparation

Format: Paperback
As a PA student, this book has everything you need for referencing during your rotation. I love that the book is very compartmentalized. Management/treatment algorithms, pictures and text are clear and concise. Fits nicely in coat pocket although slightly heavy. This book also includes some primary care information in the beginning of the book, as well as some medical spanish words/phrases and ACLS algorithms in the back.

As previous reviews state, this book is a great, detailed reference, especially for nights on Labor and Delivery. However, I wish there was a new edition that didn't include the Endocrine section; I'm a family medicine doctor and don't really need the Endocrine information in my pocket at all times. It would take some of the bulk out of it. But, still glad I bought it and will just deal with the extra few ounces weighing me down.
